ColourPop has been pretty consistent in bringing forth new makeup collections and its products are extremely affordable. ColourPop Ultra Matte lip range has a vast array of lippies to choose from and I’ve gone bonkers over liquid mattes. I have more than 10 shades from this range and today I’m reviewing shade Sunday, which is my favorite neutral shade till date. Read on to find more about this product-

Packaging– The tube arrives in a nude colored box, that contains all the details of the product. The tube has a silver cap. The packaging reflects the color of the lipstick, however, the color differs a bit when applied to the lips. It has a regular doe foot applicator that makes it easy to fill in the corners of the lips.
Color and Pigmentation– It’s a light-medium pinkish brown shade for warm undertones. This neutral color is perfect for everyday use. The pigmentation of all this lipstick is awesome. It gives a completely opaque finish in one swipe.
Texture– The texture of this lipstick is extremely smooth and light-weight. It starts off glossy and dries down quickly to that super flat matte finish. The formula of this liquid lipstick is very comfortable to wear. The product isn’t infused with moisturizing properties. So, a lip balm underneath is a must.
My take on the product-
The packaging has nothing unique to offer, but it’s good for travel purposes.The shade really suits my complexion and is great everyday shade for fair to medium warm undertones. The best part is that it doesn’t stain the lips at all. The staying power is quite impressive.It lasts the entire day.The color fades away from the center of the lips if eating a more oil-based meal, but the majority of color survives a meal. It settles in lines and cracks if the lips are not properly hydrated, which is a major downside of this product. I have really dry lips, so I get tiny flakes and cracks after a few hours yet I am in love with this lippie as it stands up to its claim of being completely transfer proof. Also, pursing the lips together doesn’t help in spreading the color, as it settles to matte finish within 30 seconds of application and doesn’t budge from its position. All in all, it’s a good product.
